Jack Marshall

Originally from South Wales, Jack Marshall is an accomplished young musician with virtuosic skills. Having graduated from Middlesex University with a honours degree in Jazz, he has spent the past 5 years working as a professional musician in London. Jack has accumulated an eclectic musical taste as well as a versatile playing style from his time in bands. While the band’s influences include Stevie Wonder, James Brown, Jamiroquai and other more modern artists, their energetic performances cover music they love to play and always focus on making the night enjoyable for the audience. This is why we are lucky to welcome Jack back onboard with us as he delivers again and again, bringing the crowd to life with his mind-blowing sets. Jack and friends can play as a duo, or up to a full band quintet. Take a look for yourself: Youtube – Jack Marshall

Urban Soul Orchestra

Urban Soul Orchestra (USO) is a contemporary and versatile string ensemble with a unique twist, incorporating percussion, bass, DJ and vocals. Having been voted the World’s Most Prestigious Event Supplier in the Prestigious Star Awards 2016, the Urban Soul Orchestra Chill Out set is a unique blend of live strings with a professionally produced soundtrack, creating a lusciously rich soundscape of chill-out music. The USO chill-out set creates a relaxed vibe for informal drinks receptions, or as unobtrusive background music. Equally, their Chill Out set can gently build in tempo throughout the set if required, gradually encouraging guests from their seats and onto the dance floor.

The repertoire list for this set includes songs that they originally arranged the strings for by major artists such as Nitin Sawhney, Nightmares on Wax and features their chill out remixes of iconic songs such as Viva La Vida and Chasing Cars. This set can also feature Saxophone and Percussion, instead of two of the violins if preferred, i.e. Violin, Cello, Saxophone, Percussion.
